Independent Directors serve as an important institution of corporate governance, significantly contributing to boards by bringing diverse sets of skills as well as independent judgement on critical problems. Independent Directors must act as custodians of good governance by effectively monitoring and advising. They must act in the best interests of the company and all stakeholders.

The Ministry of Corporate Affairs recognises the importance of bolstering the institution of Independent Directors and intensifying its effectiveness by developing a pool of skilled professionals to serve as Agents of Change.
